12:39 you are confused or just want to show your ignorance with your comment. A man of high integrity and exceptional work record of 17 years is an excellent candidate. Mr Vieselmeyer is positively shaping our youth in the class room and on the football field. He is more than qualified with his work experience and professional training and education. I would bet that any school system would hire him away if they had the opportunity.
